Becky Namgauds is a choreographer and dance artist creating intense, powerful work that sits between dance, performance art and installation. Inspired by personal and political issues, her work is female-driven and internationally influenced with recurring themes of feminism, femicide and the environment. Choreographically, she draws on her wide range of movement experience, including contemporary dance, yoga and Capoeira.
Namgauds has created work for theatres, outdoor festivals, galleries and music videos. In the past she has collaborated with Hofesh Shechter Company and LIFT (London International Festival of Theatre). Her show Like Honey was part of the British Council Edinburgh Showcase 2019 and her outdoor work Rodadoras tours nationally and internationally. She is currently a Without Walls Blueprint Artist for 2019-20, researching a new outdoor work, The Anthropocene. Becky's solo Exhibit F premiered at Dance Umbrella 2019 as part of Out Of The System Mixed Bill and toured in early 2020.
She is currently creating a commission on EMERGENCE, the post-graduate company at Salford University which will be touring in the UK in 2021. This year Becky is working with aerial dance company Scarabeus as choreographer for their new show Emerging and will be collaborating with multidisciplinary artistic duo Arbonauts to create a site specific performance with over 50 cold water swimmers for Estuary 2021.
Becky is currently teaching contemporary technique, focusing on technical floor work and moving upside down to the post-graduate and 3rd year students at London Contemporary Dance School.
